What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The report does not assume that the figures indicate the exact de crease in the amount of feeding that will be done the coming season. Too many (nfluenceb enter into the feed ing business for that. What it does show is that a cut in cattle feeding operations this year is intended by corn belt stockmen. One reason for this cut 1 b the anticipated high mar ket on corn, and another the unsat isfactory financial outcome of feed ing operations in a good many in stances the past year. No one can say that some curtail ing of feeding is not logical under the circumstances. Evidence to all too strong that feeding has been overdone somewhat for a season or two, and particularly the past year. But when the country starts out to cut down it generally goes to the other extreme, and so radical a de crease as 26 per cent in prospective feeding operations indicates that this is exactly what 1« happening now. High feed coats generally drive the array of in-and-outens out o f the feeding business, and that is why some successful feeders claim that feeding high priced corn is often more profitable than feeding cheap corn. At any rate, the situation offers an excellent opportunity for testing the theory that going against the crowd pays, for the erowd very obri- onsly is not going in heavily for cattle feeding this year.— The Jour nal-Stockman, Omaha. JACKSON NEWS NOTES Mr. and Mrs. George drove to Batte Monday. Clemow Charles Burdick transacted buei- ness in Dillon this week. Soren Keileon and 3 P Lo v A of Wisdom aetoed to Dillon Monday Mr. and M m . Joe Kramer are via- Iting their daughter in Anaconda this week. Mr. Biafson « I Dffioa spent severe! days o f the peat week in theBaste in the interest o f the forest reserve. We h i pleased to sets ttttSe D A Hteseh? m improving from ids illness and h expected in spit« a t the weather the lag e f the Cowrty n u i f l w e< W » On the local page this week we have quite a poit leal gallery; that is, a number of candidates are ask lag for your vote tn November. No doubt there are other candidates in Beaverhead county and in.the state who woud also ’ like to have your vote; but it they don’t introduce themselves w? don't know who will. It is “ quite a chore,” to be sure, to personally interview the voters and the next best thing is to speak thro' the columns of the local mwspaper. Taking The News candidates as they come: There's Dan Mo-oney, republican tor sheriff. Dan has made a good of ficer and will be found upheld by many at the polls. His opponent, Duke Gist, once sheriff of Beaver head, aso has a record which any man might be proud of. He will have the full strength of his party, no doubt, and many republicans who think back will support him. A E Main, democratic candidate tor county commissioner, boldly an nounces the fact that he is opposed to bonding Old Beaverhead. We can not stay with Arch on this line, but he is The News choice for commis sioner because we believe he will be governed in his official acts by a business sense rather than personal prejudice. This will not do The News any good as a contender for the county printing, for the hold-overs will outvote Arch if we were foolish enough to bid on the job in an effort to save Beaverhead a few hundred, mayhap a few thousand, dollars. Fred Rife, democratic candidate for clerk of the district court, has the experience which most admira by fits him for the position. He is affalble, accommodating and if elect ed will perform the duties of his office to the general satisfaction of all. Pearl I Smith, republican candi date for representative, Is one of the racist loyal cttUens of the county and is fully capable of representing the people of the great county he loves. Lyman Bennett and Henry Rodg ers are republican candidates for the district judgeship, which covers Bea verhead, Jefferson andy Madison counties Judge Bennett has madp a record on the bench of which hia myriad friends are Justly proud end if he succeeds himself no one can have cause for complaint. Mr. Rodgers is well qualified for the po sition and If elected can be depended upon to administer the law without fear or favor. Charles T Stewart, republican can didate for iseeretary of state, has sat isfactorily performed the dutleb of that office during his incumbency and is better qualified to conduct it than when he began. By the way, it ia bad policy to trade hosses while crossing a stream, and just now we need jtfst such a man as Charles T Stewart in the office he seeks.

The Arkansas College of Agriculture had three cows comfort ably quartered In a corner of the lob by at the convention hotel In Lillie Rock. One cow displayed was a pure bred Jersey which made a profit of $86 last year, a second was a high grade cow, the product of a purebred bull and a scrub cow. She made a profit of $58. The third cow was a common scrub eow, declared to be a detriment to Arkansas farming.
